. right now, a republican governor. president obama carried this state twice. democrats want a democratic victory tonight to try to make the case. virginia is shifting from a one-time red state, becoming a blue state. fascinating issues at play in this race. the very same issues that will be in play next year in the midterm elections and likely in the 2016 presidential campaign as well. the government shutdown, the tactics of the tea party and the president's health care plan. the it's one thing to watch tonight in virginia. do a majority of the voters oppose obama care? do they have disagreements with the president's health care plan and at the same time, do they elect a democratic governor? do they reject a republican candidate who's among the first attorneys general to challenge it. if that happens, watch for republicans to have a painful lesson about whether their candidate was too far to the right, especially in a state shifting more to a moderate purple state. >> right and we mentioned 2016. mcauliffe very close to the clintons, could be seen as perhaps what does it mean for the pos
supporter of obama care is now saying that president obama should let people keep their current insurance in reference, of course, to the president's pledges that people can go ahead and keep their current health plan if they like them. jim acosta from the white house will talk a little bit about this. if bill clinton is weighing in on this, i imagine that says something very much this is political. this is a political hot potato. this means something here he is weighing in and weighing in on this side saying you know what? i think they need to do this. why is this so important? >> that's right. this white house can no longer, suzanne, say it's just the republicans who want to scuttle obama care, who want to repeal it and not replace it with anything else. it's now democrats inside the party close to the president very important high profile democrats saying wait a minute, this is not working the way it's rolling out right now. something has to be done to fix it. perhaps there is no bigger democrat who is saying that at this point than bill clinton who gave an interview to a little known
